Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Friday, January 15, 2021

The old saying about the shelf life of the printed daily newspaper takes on new life with the sale of hiatused Editor & Publisher to, of all things, a company that publishes boating and fishing magazines.

[Previous owner] Nielsen officially closed Editor & Publisher on New Year’s Eve after announcing in early December that the magazine would cease publication. Duncan McIntosh Co. is also publisher of several boating magazines and newspapers, and hosts the Newport Boat Show and the Lido Yacht Expo, both held in Newport Beach.

Not a promising sign for the newspaper industry when its flagship trade pub goes through such an ignominious transfer. At least there’s no danger of E&P becoming overloaded with rod-and-reel news: Fact is, McIntosh already puts out its own FishRap News.
